Lovely little restaurant in the middle of New Plymouth. Southern Indian cuisine much lighter than usually found in Indian restaurants and so flavoursome Lovely Dosas and general curry based foods but light and refreshing.

Truly authentic South Indian restaurant with amazing food mix and lovely ambience and staff which remembers our preferences every time I and my friends visit. My personal favourite is grilled prawns and medu vada in entree and chicken chittinad in Mains with nice parathas.

It is really nice to get Indian food that isn't all Anglo-Indian. The food we had was really nice - I enjoyed my 'lamb 'stew'. Also service with a smile. We would call again if we are back in New Plymouth.

A romantic couple, families celebrating the new school year, a solo diner, all were enjoying the food and the music. South Indian food uses a look of coco-nut so different and delicious.
